I'm going through some of the lesser known romantic era works. Currently working on Wenzel Matiegka's 2nd sonata, as well as a few small pieces by Marco Aurelio Zani de Ferranti. Also working on three pieces from Giuliani's op. 46. I just started playing with no nails and gut strings, so I'm needing to adjust my technique quite a bit.

Ferdinando Carulli's Rondo, from his Method, Op 27.
Not, by any means, a difficult piece, but very cheerful and satisfying!

"Lullaby," by Andrew York. When Jason Wolverton built me a guitar....Luz Blanca.....he posted a video of him playing, "Lullaby," on this forum and on youtube, so I am going to learn the piece. I went to Andrew York's website and discovered that the piece is free! :)

At he moment I memorize Pavana and Prelude, both by Tarrega. I memorized these pieces already about 2 years ago, but I stopped playing them, and now 2 years later I learn them again with different fingerings for both, LH and RH.
